Mormon Says Pilgrims Gospel's Base SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Columbus, the pilgrims and the Founding Fathers laid the foundation for a restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ in America, President Nathan Eldon Tanner of the Mormon Church First Presidency told a worldwide audience Sunday. "Only as we accept and live the teachings of the gospel can the destiny which God planned for America be realized, and the world united in peace and brotherhood," President Tanner told the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon) 146th World Conference. Thousands of church faithful gathered in the Tabernacle, on Temple Square and in nearby buildings to listen to sermons on often-repeated religious principles. Mormon conferences; held each April and October, consist of a series of speeches by the ruling General Authorities. They include no public debate or disagreement over church issues. Final sessions will be Tuesday, anniversary of the church's organization and anniversary of the day on which Mormons believe Christ was born. High point of the conference came Saturday when PIEDMONT UPHOLSTERING CO. 1303 I. Washington St. "MISS 8,000 members in the Mormon Tabernacle raised their right hands in .unanimous approval for inclusion of two written revelations in church scriptures, the first such action this century. Both new scriptures were given to early church leaders and deal with life after death. . Conference sessions are broadcast over 350 radio and .. ' television stations throughout the world, the Church said. . .; ' "We would expect every' man to be loyal to his native land the land in which he was born, the land in which he lives, works and rears his family," President Tanner said. Saying he wanted to point out the destiny of America in God's plan, he added, "The discovery of America was no accident. The event had been foreordained in the eternal councils. The prophets of old had it in view. "We believe the Constitution was brought about by God to ensure a nation where liberty could abound and where His gos: pel could flourish," the church leader said, adding, "Among other things, the Constitution guaranteed the religious freedom that allowed the reformation to continue and flourish."
